There is no need to submit a separate bug. If you want to associate metadata to
Web pages, there are a lot of different ways already to do that. What you might
want to do is to look into link relations, and define a new one (pointing to
the original for translations) if nothing feasible is available. But that's
outside the HTML spec.
